Keeping Fedora Bitstream Vera fonts

I just recently read that Fedora will be switching to the DejaVu fonts soon. I've used this font set in Ubuntu before and, call me picky, but I really don't like it. Will there be a way for me to switch back to the font set used up to and including FC5? I ask this also because I've always wanted to change the fonts on my Ubuntu install to the ones used in the default Fedora installation.

If you're not sure of the difference, here are two screenshots: Bitstream Vera and DejaVu.

First Fedora might switch, not will when Fedora Core 6 is released.

Second please review;

The link provides you will all the information you need to install or remove the DejaVu fonts. Keepng the Bitstream Vera fonts is not a problem, installing the Bitstream Vera fonts should not be a problem either. Having both font sets available is quite possible.
